The boys in my house turned up their noses when I told them this was lunch. Not anymore, they loved them! I couldn't find the british/irish bacon so used a good large sliced type. Made for PAC fall 2009.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 -6 slices of british bacon (or Irish)
  • 2 slices white bread
  • brown sauce ("HP" is the most famous but "Chef" or "Norfolk Manor" are good brands too)


  1. Fry the bacon in a pan until crispy.
  2. Remove the bacon from pan and place on 1 slice of bread.
  3. Take the other slice of bread and rub it around the pan to pick up any left over bacon juices.
  4. Spread some brown sauce on the bread you just used to scoop up the juices and place on top of bacon to complete sandwich.
  5. Eat right away while it's still warm.
